Printmaking emerged in the 1970s as a dynamic and affordable art form that engaged a much wider audience with contemporary New Zealand art. While the New Zealand Print Council provided a national forum for printmakers at this time, there were also a number of metropolitan and regional printmaker collectives throughout New Zealand. In Gisborne, Penny Ormerod led an active group of printmakers and a number of that group are still printmaking today.

Rockers and Rollers, a selection of New Zealand prints from the New Zealand Print Council Collection, collected from 1967 until 1977, includes works by Pat Hanly, John Drawbridge, Marilynn Webb, Barry Cleavin, Robin White, Penny Ormerod, Roy Cowan, Gordon Walters and Jeffrey Harris. The New Zealand Print Council Collection was gifted to Aratoi the Wairarapa Museum of Art and History. Aratoi has generously made this selection of prints from the collection available for exhibition at Tairāwhiti Museum.
